thing i think links what bill o'reilly said on his program last night and ray kelly's defense of his record is the idea that the best thing you can do for young african-american men, young african-americans in general is have a very intense law and order state that is very aggressive about policing and putting wrongdoers in jail because the victims of those wrongdoers are, themselves, african-american, and you have spent your adult career working in the criminal justice system. my question to you is, does that argument have purchase with you? >> no, it really doesn't. it's a distraction. trayvon martin wasn't killed because he didn't have two parents who loved him. he wasn't killed because of some social deficit or some cultural deficit. he was killed because of a p presumption of guilt. all over this country, we're allowing black and brown children to be burdened with the presumption of guilt so they live their whole lives always being suspected. we had the president of the united states acknowledging his own dealings with this p presumption of guilt. when anyone says that's not a p

article in the "huffington post" in defense of the rights and dignity of sex workers in which i used my first-person experience to support the narrative claim that not all sex workers were victims of pimps or under control of traffickers because i hadn't, that was that story. and some days later, weeks later actually, i was front page news. >> literally front page news. >> correct. on the "new york post." >> i went back and looked at the "new york post" coverage. this is like a gift from god to the "new york post." it's like prostitute teacher in your schools. >> absolutely. they had basically taken my story and made it theirs. >> right. now, that is -- i mean, you wrote this great article for "new york" magazine talking about your perspective on watching the spitzer rehabilitation campaign. you said "five years ago eliot spitzer got caught paying women like me and now he's stumping, smiling for photographers and topping the political polls for new york's next controller. i would be find with spitzer's return to politics. apologizing and get might career back wasn't exactly an option ou

defense, how do you have enough funding? i'm willing to cut entire departments. my problem with some of the more liberal members of the republican party is, they're not willing to cut spending other places in order to preserve national defense. >> joining me now is robert george, editorial writer for new york post, josh barrel and tim carnie, senior political columnist for the washington examiner. visiting fellow at the enterprise institute. you're team paul in this one, i take it? what do you think -- why do you think this is a good fight for the republicans to have? i sense you do think it is. and why is paul the one that you're backing, that you feel speaks for the party the best. >> first let me say i do not accept rand paul's premise that eating bacon makes you gain weights, i think it's the carbs. in the foreign policy realm, what we need and in the national security realm, as far as nsa, spying and the great stuff that you and glenn were talking about earlier, what we need is a robust debate and there hasn't been that in the republican party for a long time. it's been close. in t

a vote on the amendment to the defense spending bill, sponsored by republican amage and democrat conyers. it defines the stuff we first learns about in the edward snowden allegations. the call logs of every single verizon customer were being turned over to the government. discontinuing that practice, it's an idea that a varitable who's who. the top three republicans in the house oppose the measure. the top republican and democrat of the senate intelligence committee released a joint statement calling it unwise. more than half a dozen house committee and subcommittee chairman sent out a letter urging their colleagues to vote against it. keith alexander was dispatched to the hill yesterday. james clapper the director of national intelligence today said the measure risked dismantling an important tool. the white house released a statement urging the house to reject it. that is what this amendment was up against, pretty much no one in the top washington power bracket from either side of the political aisle wanted to be debating this thing. it's support was also bipartisan. the bipart

who are bankrupting the government and not letting enough money be left over for national defense. >> people have stopped being polite and started getting real in the republican party. that was senator rand paul, tea party hero of kentucky, and likely presidential candidate, going hard at the gop's neocon wing and throwing in a jab on disaster relief for good measure. paul was responding primarily to comments made by new jersey governor chris christie seen by many as one of paul's chief potential rivals for the 2016 republican nomination. chris christie criticized the party's libertarian shift on matters of national security at a recent panel discussion in colorado. >> this strain of libertarianism that's going through both parties right now and making big headlines, i think, is a very dangerous thought. >> christie took that shot in the wake of the house's vote to defund nsa bulk collection of phone records which failed by a narrow margin. christie's attempt to stamp out a growing fire of skepticism among the republican base toward everything from mass surveillance to foreign war

defense, "slate" points out, he has a long struggle of getting funding for his projects. last year's red hook summer was self-financed and shot in 19 days. it's something spike lee addresses. >> you might say, spike, you didn't connect, do the right thing, blah, blah, blah. it's a different climate now. the only way to ensure as an independent filmmaker that your vision gets on screen is when you bring the money to the table. >> the reason why spike lee is here, the reason why zach braff is here and countless others is because the film industry is, what's the word? a mess. the big studios don't want anything to do with movies that aren't a sure thing. in other words, unless he wants to direct superman 19, spike lee may not have any other options. joining me at the table, filmmakers, carl and tia, who funded their documentary through kickstarter. and a chief film critic for "new york" magazine. great to have you here. you guys have this documentary about the koch brothers coming out and filmed it through kickstarter, right? >> actually we got green lit by public television. we got funding
